Give a gift of a lifetime: Help transform the lives of children!
Immersion Trip to NPH Dominican Republic with St. Julia’s Parish
Travel Dates: April 18 – 24, 2020
(Registration Deposits DUE: December 20, 2019)
St Julia’s parish is partnering with NPH, (Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos means our little brothers and sisters) in Caribbean and Central American Nations to support vulnerable children.
Join our parish and NPH for a one-week immersion trip to the NPH home in the Dominican Republic. Experience firsthand how NPH USA transforms the lives of children! You will meet the amazing children, staff, and volunteers of NPH and learn about their daily lives. Whether you are new to NPH, or a longtime supporter, visiting our homes is the best way to see what we do in action.
We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home and this will allow us to immerse ourselves in NPH life with the children and their culture. While the children are in school, you will help with the daily chores around the property, such as; working in the gardens and farm, caring for the special needs children, working in the kitchen and carpentry shop, and other jobs the home assigns. After a morning of work, relax and hang out with the pequeños in the afternoons. Activities will be coordinated with the children of different age groups throughout the week. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet with the leadership of the NPH home, tour all of the home’s facilities, and hear from the children about living at NPH.
